DON’T DICTATORS AND THEIR MILITARY GO TOGETHER?

Published November 22, 2018 by Nan Mykel

It seems whenever I read of a country’s people attempting to rise up against their dictator,  his military supports the ruler against the people.  I read now that Critics have raised questions about the need to use active-duty troops for a mission already involving Border Patrol agents and National Guard personnel, citing concerns the deployment could violate the Posse Comitatus Act, a law limiting military activities within the United States.

Trump has already corrupted good republicans, waged war on our checks and balances including the judiciary,  trashed our reputation and influence among our allies,  kept the most armed better armed, raised the possibility of a nuclear war, insulted our CIA, and now he’s getting the military to do his political bidding.  Dictators also imprison their opponents.

Trump  wants to jail Hillary.  Haven’t heard a word about his daughter’s similar behavior.

Rural folks seem to want to believe Trump is just a good ole bumbling dyslexic boy who made good, as they’d like to do.  I fear au contraire he is craftily orchestrating the   castration and subsequent annihilation of the American Dream for his very personal gains.  He knows what he’s doing to America.
